During September and October ONLY….A fun activity for any age group! Perfect for Mother’s groups, Pre-K groups and Scout programs.
If you like arts and crafts and would like to meet our rare farm animals, you will love the ‘Autumn Craft Adventure’!
During this 60-minute visit you will have the pleasure of befriending rare farm animals while following a trail of clues. During the journey, each clue that you discover will guide you to the parts that you will need, in order to complete the craft, at the end of the adventure.
Once you have gathered all of the pieces, you will retreat to the ‘coop’ where you will find whatever additional tools may be needed to assemble the craft. Our staff will instruct and guide the children but, depending on the age of the participants, additional assistance from the teachers/group leaders may be required during the crafting process. Each person in the group will leave with a completed autumn-themed craft. The complexity of the project is tailored for each group, keeping in mind the age and ability of the participants.
For even more fun, you can extend your stay another 20 minutes and bring along a drink and a snack for your group to have after they complete their project!
